The move is aimed at curbing speculative trades and short selling. Trading in stocks under the short-term ASM framework will require investors to pay 100% upfront margin even for intraday trading.
The additional surveillance is part of SEBI and the Exchanges’ initiative to enhance market integrity and safeguard the interest of investors.
One of the criteria for moving a stock under this framework is if it sees a 25% downside or upside against Nifty 50 for 5 trading days.
